Energy Climate Action Kit
Learn about sustainable energy systems and how they affect our environment.
This online learning course is designed to be used in conjunction with a physical InkSmith Energy Climate Action Kit. Each kit includes a coupon code to access these online modules for free.
The Energy Climate Action Kit is an immersive hands-on learning experience centered around sustainable energy systems and their impact on our environment. Students will choose from three modules - Wind, Solar, and Electric Vehicles. Within each module, students will learn about the sustainable energy system, how it connects to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, real-life examples of the energy system in industry, while also completing multiple hands-on experiments to see that energy system in action.
In the second part of each module, students will be challenged to build and code a specific project relating to the energy system they've learned about. Through this coding and physical computing activity, students will explore block-based coding with the BBC micro:bit which will allow them to program the various robotic components in the Energy Climate Action Kit. Following the completion of both parts of the module, Part A: Background & Context and Part B: Coding & Physical Computing, students will complete a self-assessment and reflect on a variety of Social-Emotional Learning Prompts.
